Letter: Balloga family says thanks for support

Cindy and I have been awed at the number of people who have voiced their worries and prayers regarding our Marine’s safety while he was in Iraq. We have been touched at the number of people who have stopped him on the street, shaken his hand and thanked him for his service.
It’s humbling when one realizes that our well-being, our security, our very existence rests squarely on the shoulders of a bunch of 19-year-old kids.
Let us all pray for all those kids, who by placing themselves at the sharp end of the stick, hold our lives above their own.
Thank you, Meeker.
Steve and Cindy Balloga
